VIDEOTANK # 20 : SUNSTONE
October 17th to December 14th, 2019
Incorporating 16mm celluloid images, digital desktop captures and 3D CGI, the film also maps a technological trajectory: from historical methods of optical navigation to new algorithms of locating, from singular projection to multi-perspectival satellitic visions. Registering these technical advances progressively through the film’s materials and means of production, Sunstone creates “a cinema of affect, a cinema of experience – an Op film.”
Louis Henderson is a filmmaker who is currently trying to find new ways of working with people to address and question our current global condition defined by racial capitalism and ever-present histories of the European colonial project. The working method is archaeological. Since 2015 he has been collaborating with the curator, producer, writer and performer Olivier Marboeuf on a variety of projects including talks, exhibitions, screenings, workshops, a play, short films and the production of a feature film. Henderson has shown his work at places such as; Rotterdam International Film Festival, The Netherlands; Doc Lisboa, Portugal; CPH:DOX, Copenhagen; New York Film Festival, NY; The Contour Biennial, Belgium; The Kiev Biennial, Ukrain; The Centre Pompidou, Paris; SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin; The Gene Siskel Film Center, IL; Gasworks, London; and Tate Britain, London. His work is in the public collection of the Centre National des Arts Plastiques, France.
The artists and the curator discuss their work with the visitors at 5:30pm on the night of the opening reception.
